Crouch End optical assistant gets a taste for volunteering
A friendly optical assistant at the Crouch End store is turning her hand to cooking in the name of charity.
Annie Watson-Foulds, who has worked at the store for more than a year, is set to become a volunteer for The Food Chain. The 25-year-old, who originally hails from Yorkshire, is working with the charity which offers cookery and nutritional classes to people in London living with HIV.
Annie said: ‘The Food Chain offers positive eating classes to ensure people living with HIV have the nutritional information they need to live healthy, independent lives. A friend of mine already volunteers so I decided to sign up too as I’m really interested in nutrition.’
Annie will take part in a training course before becoming a fully-fledged volunteer with the charity. She is planning to host a number of fundraising events in the store to raise much-needed funds for the charity.
Store director Tarloak Sandhu said: ‘Annie is a brilliant member of the team. Customers and staff alike love talking to her so I think she’ll do a great job with the Food Chain. We look forward to hosting events in store to help fundraise for such a worthy cause.’
